Quenda quilts are designed to be versatile, ultralight and highly compressible. Ultralight quilts are popular with those who are looking to reduce their pack weight or prefer the freedom of a quilt to a restrictive mummy bag.
The 800FP duck down is the insulation choice for those who are not concerned about saving every gram. It is still lightweight and compressible and for most people will be a great option.
We offer a number of options so that you can customise your quilt to meet your specific needs, preferences and to accommodate a wide range of body shapes .
Made in Deloraine, Tasmania.
Insulation: Water repellant 800FP HyperDry Grey Duck Down RDS certified (Responsible Down Standard).
Baffle Style: Horizontal baffles at the core of the quilt to keep the down where you need it. Vertical baffles on the periphery to help keep the down situated on top of your torso and allows us to slightly under fill the very outer baffle for a slight weight savings.
Offset dual draw cord and snap at the head end allows you to seal in the warmth. The draw cord is offset at either side of the top of the quilt so it is easily reached for venting or sealing in the warmth whilst you are snuggled in the quilt but remains away from your face.
Pad and back straps - you get two sets of straps. 1. A shorter set which simply attach to the quilt buckles to pull the edges under you‚ but not attached to the pad. 2. A set of straps which go around your sleeping pad and then attach the quilt to your pad. You can use either‚ a combination of the two or none depending on your preference.
Adjustable Footbox: The adjustable footbox uses snaps and a draw cord to form the footbox. This allows the user to have a closed footbox‚ or open it right up and use it like a blanket. Being able to open the quilt up can also be useful for drying the quilt quicker if you happen to get some moisture on the footbox during the night.

Width: Various widths are available for Shoulder, Hip and Foot, so that you can tailor the fit of the quilt to your own needs.
For the shoulder width adding 15cm to your shoulder circumference provides a good starting point but if you are a restless sleeper then adding 20cm can be of benefit and/or adding extra width at the hips will provide better coverage along your lower back when you toss and turn and make you less reliant on the pad straps. Having a little bit more width on a quilt can be helpful especially in really cold temperatures.
152 - for people up to 152cm
165 - for people up to 165cm
178 - for people up to 178cm
190 - for people up to 190cm
203 - for people up to 203cm
Note: If you are close to the maximum height listed above consider moving up a size.
10D is our usual standard inner being lighter weight, more breathable and has a silkier feel than the 15 denier.
15D is our usual standard outer having a slightly better DWR coating and being slightly more durable, 10D will be less weight and pack down a bit smaller though
If weight savings and pack size are important to you then choose 10D for both inner and outer.
